Caregivers do matter.
Well how else could I or would I describe myself?
My son is on a up and down roller coaster, my daughter has major mood swings,my second hubby has an arm length list of things that keep popping up. Mother in law is always in a bad mood and the only person she can take it out on or talk to is me. I do my best not to go on any pity parties, but sometimes I simply go sit in the bath and have a good cry. And that seems to work for awhile.
Everyone keeps telling me I am a tower of strength, friends and family members seem to think I can solve any issue in their life, or that of their children.
Now been thinking, I need to stop, I need to focus on myself. Those thoughts have just gone out my mind when the next person appears with dry tears on their face or red eyes.
I now take at least 2 hours a day of me time.
And reassure myself... I might not have any documents saying I am a caregiver, but this I know... I care...
